Brutal honesty appreciated!

Postby redsoxsucker » Mon Mar 28, 2011 4:58 pm

Hi all,

I am in a 10-team 5X5 auction league and I ended up with the team below. Clearly my pitching is suspect, but just how bad is it? What do you think of this team overall? What types of moves would you look to make if you were me?

Thanks!

HITTERS
Geovany Soto, ChC C
Miguel Cabrera, Det 1B
Chone Figgins, Sea 2B
David Freese, StL 3B (likely to be cut once Youkilis can go here)
Stephen Drew, Ari SS
Nelson Cruz, Tex OF
Andre Ethier, LAD OF
Matt Holliday, StL OF
Kevin Youkilis, Bos UT/1B/3B (will be primary 3B once eligible)
Jacoby Ellsbury, Bos UT/OF

Bench
Chris Young, Ari OF
Aaron Hill, Tor 2B (will be primary 2B unless hurt)
David Ortiz, Bos DH


PITCHERS
Daniel Hudson, Ari SP
Colby Lewis, Tex SP
Tommy Hanson, Atl SP
Josh Johnson, Fla SP
James Shields, TB SP
Ian Kennedy, Ari SP
Ryan Franklin, StL RP
Jose Valverde, Det RP


Bench
Jaime Garcia, StL SP

A-Rod is a little B*tch

Thanks for your advice on my thread

Your pitching is not as bad as you think it is! You have good K/9 rates and should be above average in WHIP and Wins. I'd consider moving some of your batting bench for a starter to replace Kennedy.

Hey Man,

I think your pitching might be as bad as you think. JJ and Hanson are very good. JJ of course has the injury history. I expect a big year from Hanson though. Hudson is a question mark in my opinion, but I am not a fan of superb yet short track records. Plus he pitches in a launching pad. With that, Ian Kennedy is a guy you can potentially cash in on before stuff goes wrong. I would package him with Cruz (find someone who loves him despite his health record) and get a good SP. This reduces your injury risk while reinforcing your pitching staff. Plus you got CY sitting there, a potential 30/30 guy in the aforementioned ballpark.

Help on mine?
